History Smashdown!

On Wednesday 15th November, four scholars from across the intellectual spectrum will fight it out to find the best year ever.

Our experts will take to the stage using wit and knowledge to take you into the past, to share their passions, to entertain and delight you.

Then YOU will choose the greatest year the human race has ever seen.

Hosted by Steve Cross and with performers from the worlds of history, science, archaeology and languages.

The competitors:

FROM HISTORY – Fern Riddell, historian, TV star and expert in the suffragettes, victorian smut and storytelling

FROM ARCHAEOLOGY – Paul Duncan McGarrity, archaeologist, host of the Ask An Archaeologist podcast and top-notch nerdy comedian

FROM SCIENCE – Steve Lee, Royal Society University Research Fellow at Cambridge, chemist and entertainer

FROM MODERN LANGUAGES – Geraldine Horan, Lecturer in German at UCL and expert on swearing.

Join us at 7.30pm. Tickets are £6.
